In order to make the youth aware of sustainable development and solidarity, the Athénée has set up two optional courses: “Linking youth education and life skills with nature” and “Education in development”, both open to students of 2e.

In addition, all high school students have the opportunity to enrol in two courses, one of which focuses on the humanitarian actions and the functioning of NGOs, while the other focuses on issues of sustainable development and cooperation in Cape Verde.
